DonMonique

DonMonique drops the video for “Chocolate Bunny,” a track off her latest project Black Kate Moss, which dropped late last year.

“‘Chocolate Bunny’ comes off of her latest project Black Kate Moss, which the name alone brings to mind a range of attitudes due to the model’s illustrious career serving looks,” she said in a recent interview.

She adds, “For this particular music video I definitely wanted it to be sexy without me actually having to put all the sex appeal in it myself which is why I had my girls in it as well. I think just because you’re dancing around with women in a video isn’t not considered ‘classy’ nowadays, especially in the music industry. Guys do worse in their videos and no one treats them any different. At the end of the day I look at all of this as entertainment and as long as I know how to carry myself properly in everyday life that’s really what’s important.”

FKi 1st & UnoTheActivist – “Live A Lil”

Seattle’s rapper and crooner Dave B releases the lead single and music video “CPU Luv” from his sophomore album BLEU, which is due June 7. On the Sango and Wax Roof-produced track, Dave B craves the same love that encapsulates his peers with their digital devices, so enamored with their online fantasy life that they become disconnected with reality around them.

Dave explains, “Love me like you do your computer, love. I don’t require hella attention but I don’t think anyone likes to repeat themselves. I think we were in LA or some shit n I just noticed how shorty and all the homies just be locked into their phones to the point where niggas became unresponsive. That’s kind of what it is for this generation I feel like, so I wrote this.”

The video is directed by Lea Godoy and Kyle McCarty.

Lil Tjay – “Releases” featuring Jay Critch

Young Art Records and TOKiMONSTA release their highly anticipated
Young Art Sound II project. The new album features 2017’s Young Art Sound compilation. The LP is a collection featuring original music from TOKiMONSTA and other artists such as MNDR, L-Vis 1990, Manila Killa, Two Fresh, HOLLY and more

Speaking on the series, TOKiMONSTA said: “The music industry has been referred to as an over-saturated space, but this compilation series is my way of breaking through the noise. I simply want to share new artists with people willing to trust in me. Though I am known as a musician and performer, I am a music lover first. The shared music and discovered music created the artist I am today. Now, I get to share other talented up and coming artists with an audience willing to give them a moment of their time. In the end, creating and influencing a new generation of music creators and lovers.”
